If you're having trouble getting your data into Tableau Desktop, you may need to do some data prep before it's analysis-ready. Use Tableau Prep to combine, clean, or shape your data then output it to Tableau Desktop for analysis. The flexible, visual experience of Tableau Prep gives you a deeper understanding of your data. It makes common, yet complex tasks like joins, unions, pivots and aggregations simple and visual. With your Creator license, you get access to Tableau Prep.
